To get through customs just put a couple six packs on top of the ten tons of ice.

Yeah, it was super exciting. Gutting out a high end mid 90's RV. The appliaces, and the rv itself, had little use on them and look to be good to go. That ice maker is $1300 new! And soooo simple to install.

From the link:

"I'm publishing this recipe because I'm sure that there are other families who have members, who don't know how or have forgotten how to make ice when the ice tray is empty."

I REALLY hope he's being sarcastic

Get the tape measure out. My E-door is on the side, not in the rear. I measured the opening of the door for max width and then inside for max height. My E-door is 30" wide, so max width was 28". The fridge has about 5" of top front clearance and 1" in the top rear. Because I put it on the driver's side, the cable run on the floor keeps the box about 2" away from the wall, ensuring more than adequate air flow.

When you go shopping, take those dimensions with you. Go for the most room you can get, as well as the most energy efficient.

Thanks! I am soon to be at the point of plumbing and electrical which is a little intimidating but very excited to move forward
